Stayed here for 3 nights with 4 people. Had large 2 bedroomed apartment, over two storeys. We felt place was adequate for our stay. Good location with easy walking into town. Quiet location. Although decor is a bit tired, rooms were good size. We used electric fan, which worked fine. Bathroom and kitchen ok. We were out most of time,... More

We really wanted to like this place. We booked early for the summer period and the reviews at the time were ( mostly) positive. It is walking distance to Battery point and Salamanca place, and the price was good compared to other one bedroom apartments in the area. There is a reason for that. To start the apartment was tired,... More

We booked a night at the Hotel on the phone months in advance. When we arrived on an extremely busy weekend there was no booking to be found. Because we had no proof in the form of a confirmation email or a booking.com reference we were told it was our fault and we would need to go elsewhere. The office... More

We stayed 1 night in November 2014 and it was a disaster. Our room was not ready when we arrived at 3.30 & we sat in our car for 30 mins waiting for the room to be 'cleaned'. The room was overpriced and tacky. The bathroom had mold in the corners and around the toilet. The shower recess had lots... More

Stayed for 5 nights, unfortunately read reviews after booking. Would have cancelled however would have lost $125.00. Motel definitely not as advertised, tired, old and grubby. Mouldy shower, poor lighting, tatty curtains, dusty, I could go on however where do I stop. Do yourselves a favour and check out alternative accommodation.

Stayed 3 nights on the lower floor the place was filthy and looked like it had not been cleaned in ages. it certainly wasn't while we were there. The bathroom was a disgrace broken tiles on the floor around the toilet and on the sink with no shelf to put your toiletries on. The electric blanket plug had only one... More

My partner and I stayed here for six nights in october 2014 and were far from satisfied. Not only is this motel vastly different than shown as advertised, but they really need to get their act together with bookings. I will go through some of the negatives and will end with some of the positives. For starters, the rooms are... More

Would have moved but could not get a refund for accommodation Room old,... More

That is the ONLY reason that we choose here... About the room: we arrived at 8pm. the owner was very nice and let us choose the room for... More

booked this motel because of its location and because it is advertised as providing a'full breakfast'. We read the mixed reviews, ranging from good to terrible, so this is our experience. Upon arrival, we missed reception being open by 5 minutes, fair enough, but there was no key for us when we rang the number on the front door so... More
